Proposed trail may cost $11 million
The price tag for the proposed recreational trail between Perham and Pelican Rapids is estimated at $11,117,000.
The County Board of Commissioners is seeking a state matching grant in the amount of $5,558,500.
A federal grant of $600,000 also is being sought.
At a recent county board meeting, commissioners said they view the proposed trail, about 30 miles in length, as an enhancement to tourism and economic development in Otter Tail County.
